Homemade Cashew Butter {Raw, Vegan}

  • Yield: 1 cup 1x


Easy Small Batch Homemade Cashew Butter {Raw, Vegan}


  • 2 cup raw cashew halves (roasted will work – see notes)
  • Dash of sea salt
  • 2 to 3 tsp any other flavoring or sweetener of choice –  Cinnamon, vanilla, chili pepper for savory version, coconut sugar, maple syrup, etc)
  • Optional for creaminess – 1 tbsp coconut oil


  1. To make it more creamy, first grind your cashews in a blender then transfer to food processor. This is not necessary but I find that the cashew blend better that way.
  2. Add you seasonings then blend in food processor. 5 minutes at a time for about 15 -20 minutes.
  3. After blending for 5 minutes, scrape the sides of the processor and mix, let the processor cool then begin blending again for another 5 minutes
  4. It usually takes about 15-20 minutes unless you have a high powered food process. If you’d like a creamier texture, just add a tbsp of oil during the last 5 minutes of processing.
  5. Once smooth, spoon into a glass jar to store or just eat right away! haha.
  6. Makes 1 + cup.
